Find an equation of the line satisfying the conditions below. Describe your work. x-intercept = 5, and y-intercept = -2 Find the slope-intercept form of the line. Hint: These intercepts give you 2 points; a good way to start is to find the slope using these 2 points

@pooja195 y=5+-2 im not sure what goes for y and how to find the slope?
pooja195
  • pooja195
We need to graph it and get the slope using rise/run

Looking for something else?

so I just have to graph y=5+-2?
pooja195
  • pooja195
No graph the intercepts

so just graph (5, -2)?

Not try finding the slope :)

  • KJ4UTS
Isn't it rising up 1over 1
pooja195
  • pooja195
Start by rising up from the y axis....
KJ4UTS
  • KJ4UTS
the y axis is rising straight up? going up 1

@triciaal can you please help?

x / 5 + y / -2 = 1 is this the equation ?

No :/

Can you tell me if im doing this right or not?

well give me a few minutes need to start at the top

@KJ4UTS is this timed ?

x-intercept = 5, and y-intercept = -2 points (5, 0) and (0, -2)
triciaal
  • triciaal
slope m = change in y / change in x = y2 - y1/(x2- x1) for points (x1, y1 and (x2, y2)
triciaal
  • triciaal
slope is the same for any 2 points on the line using this slope and one of the given points with any point (x, y) equation of the line in slope intercept form y = m x + b b is the y-intercept the value of y when x = 0
triciaal
  • triciaal
what is the value for the slope?
KJ4UTS
  • KJ4UTS
2/5?

oh I see sorry I forgot to add the -
KJ4UTS

would this be the equation y= -2/5 x - 2

check your slope
KJ4UTS
  • KJ4UTS
I see so there is no - in front of the 2/5 The equation is just y=2/5 x - 2

the direction matters when moving from one point to the other

the -2/ -5 makes it positive
triciaal

my point is the direction

  • triciaal
correct

Now finish off the problem y=mx+b b=y intercept m=slope
